Default 341 hpi sc15 Discontinued. Need advice! Thanks

Hi.
Iím a total noob at this but my son has inherited an HPI mini trophy and I think the ESC needs replacing.
Certainly a couple of the wires connecting it need replacing.
Looks like the replacement ESC comes with the relevant wires pre-soldered, right?
And the above part seems to be discontinued, but the HPI site takes me to another part thatís ALSO discontinued.
Can anyone help?!

i would get something like a hobbywing 1060 esc, is also waterproof. the ESC in most RCs are pretty universal by scale, occasionally they are a 2 in 1 reciever ESC unit, but it does not look like that is the case with yours.

the esc will only push as much voltage/amperage as the Motor is demanding.
does also give you the opportunity to upgrade to brushless if you would like.
something like a Hobbywing 10bl60 combo.

you might also need to solder on new battery connectors, i personally depending on the cell count of your battery, would recommend deans connectors.
